I appreciate the detailed feedback from InformTheMasses and CREW99AW, I just don't have as optimistic a view as many of you on the board.

I hope I'm wrong.
Coaching was downgraded significantly. Other than that, Poulin/Nilsson took a giant step back.... partly because the team defense was an abomination this year compared to last.

Cizikas, Ullstrom and Rakhshani all played important roles last year and weren't replaced. They literally lost five of their top six scorers from last season..... then had guys like Jon Landry getting important minutes on defense because of injuries/call ups.

Seriously, I watched Landry cough up the puck 4X in one shift..... and that wasn't exactly a rare occurrence from him. Think Boyes is bad? lol
